Fall Days....Volume #2

Thursday, November 12, 2015

Our fall days continued.  It seems unreal that we are sneaking towards the middle of November.  Eeeeek.  

As I often say, #slowthistraindown

This volume #2 is mixed with days from September, October, and November.  This fall feels like a mad dash, but it has been such a sweet time.  Ava is loving kindergarten, Anna Claire is loving 3rd grade, Alli tolerates preschool, and John and I are busy doing our thing.  

Lincoln's Launch.  Celebrating our sweet friend Lincoln's life and his third year in heaven.  You have to watch our friend Amanda's video.  Such precious faith. 

Anna Claire leading in the Character Assembly at school!  Her job again this year is public speaker so she does the morning announcements several times a month and helps to lead the Character Assemblies at school.

October was hot.  Still.  Ugh.  Who am I kidding?!  November has only teased us ever so slightly.

Cousin Hannah plays volleyball for a small college in Arkansas.  We loved that her team was playing in Springfield so we could go watch!

Sunday Funday hiking behind our house.

Your greatest contribution to the Kingdom of God may not be something you do, but someone you raise. — Andy Stanley

We love this sweet little outfit from Adorable Essentials.  You can find the top here for only $20 and the bottoms here for $18.  I mean hello??! 

Working the book fair at schools allows me to run in to the cutest kids.  ;-)

Alli hanging with Papa at our store while I was working the book fair.

Headed out to Pastries with Pops and the book fair.

Another cutie I ran in to at the book fair.  ;-)

And another one bites the dust!

Checking out her new lost tooth!

Third Grade concert

The A girls!

This is our circus.  Those are our monkeys.

Getting a little jiggle in before bed.

Morning stretching

This kid found pinterest and LOVES.it.  Like her Mama.  She came into our room late one night and had been up busing pinning memes.  

Our favorite meme she has pinned.  I still can't stop laughing.

Beautiful sky over Branson one Saturday morning.

A rare moment where Big A and I can snuggle and watch a little Full House.

Last Saturday right after soccer we made our last trip to the pumpkin patch.  This trip was in celebration of our sweet friend Rylee turning 6!  What a fun party playing at McKenna Farm!  We roasted hot dogs, smores, and made one last roll in the hay!  Such a fun night!

Alli LOVES the corn!

We're going old school with the multiplications facts!

These sweet loves!  Makes me want to say, "is school really necessary??!" 

That's our life lately!  Busy and business as usual.
